Index of guides

A number of guides published in Canoeist over the years form the basis of the books on the following pages.

Beware!  Access and passage are not necessarily permitted and safe under all conditions. Guides begin to go out of date from the day they are written. Check the date of each guide and make due allowance, particularly when reading the fact file at the end. Significant changes in topography and attitudes can occur in a decade or two. The books have the latest information at the time of going to print.

The date is the original month of publication. The books are those which give current coverage. CoB = Canals of Britain. BRN = British River Navigations. RoB = Rivers of Britain. IB = Inshore Britain. Free download = PDF or back issue as applicable.
